A colourful, decorated but sad bicycle, seemingly abandoned on the streets of Fremantle overnight or longer.
Caught this dude fishing via his kayak under the Alco private berth down at Kwinana. Given Alcoa export alumina from this berth and import caustic soda here I am not sure I would be that keen on the fish. I guess each to their own.
“A leading State professional rider, Tommy Grant, died last Saturday morning as a result of injuries he received in a fall in the aces 5-mile scratch race at Midland Junction the previous Saturday night. He had not regained consciousness and, after an operation on Friday, contracted pneumonia.
A gloom was apparent among the cycling fraternity on Saturday at York sports, for which [the] deceased had nominated. Prior to the start of the programme all riders assembled and observed a period of reverent silence for the late rider who; aged 24, was a son of Mr. and Mrs. T. Grant, of Marmion-st., East Fremantle. Riders also wore tokens of mourning.”
The memorial as photographed in the Fremantle Cemetery was erected as a tribute to Tommy Grant from his fellow members of the Fremantle Professional Cycling Club. Rest for ever in peace Tommy Grant.
One from March 2016. I was down on South Mole heading to the end of the mole to photograph the departure of the Costa Luminosa when I took this photograph of a photography heading towards me. The South Mole is a great spot for fishing, viewing the harbour and generally chilling out on a beautiful summer evening.
